New sci-fi titles for Netflix

Netflix has announced three new sci-fi series heading into production: The I-Land, October Faction and Warrior Nun.

The I-Land is a new sci-fi action adventure series with Kate Bosworth. Neil LaBute (Billy & Billie, Van Helsing) serves as Showrunner / Director / Writer.

When ten people wake up on a treacherous island with no memory of who they are or how they got there, they set off on a trek to try to get back home. They soon discover this world is not as it seems. Faced with the island’s extreme psychological and physical challenges, they must rise to their better selves — or die as their worst ones.

Kate Bosworth (The Long Road Home, Still Alice) stars as KC and serves as a producer on the series. Natalie Martinez (The Crossing, APB, Secrets and Lies, Under the Dome) will star as Chase. Alex Pettyfer (Magic Mike, I Am Number Four, The Strange Ones, Elvis & Nixon) will star as Brody.

October Faction is created by Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow, Krypton) and produced by High Park Entertainment in association with IDW Entertainment.

Building on the success of the comic book series written by Steve Niles, October Faction follows globetrotting monster hunters Fred and Deloris Allen who, after the death of Fred’s father, return to their hometown in upstate New York with their teenage children Geoff and Viv. As the family adjusts, Fred and Deloris must hide their identities as members of a secret organisation, and our heroes quickly discover that their new small-town setting isn’t as idyllic as it seems.

Lastly, inspired by the Manga novels, Warrior Nun revolves around a 19 year-old woman who wakes up in a morgue with a new lease on life and a divine artefact embedded in her back. She discovers she is now part of an ancient order that has been tasked with fighting demons on Earth, and powerful forces representing both heaven and hell want to find and control her.

Simon Barry (Ghost Wars, Continuum) is Writer / Showrunner / Executive Producer.
